Have you found any recommendations personally helpful and started using any of them regularly? I am talking about less common things, not so much about ideas that are already widely adopted in Paleo community.

No, my opinion is that it's definitely not enough to prevent muscle catabolism. Fasted exercise is a fantastic tool for people that are trying to lose weight, as well as being handy for general fitness - where you'd wake up, work out, and then... (more)

All you need is three workouts per week -- a tempo run, a track workout (or sprint), and a long run (for 6k a long run would be 8k - 15k depending on how much you enjoy running). Beyond that cross training/ easy runs/ rest will be sufficient. ... (more)

Better make those uphill sprints... nothing drastic--a gentle slope will do. 100-120 yds. at least 8-10 times (2-3x/week) will do wonders.
